Setup Generator

Note: Using the setup generator is highly recommended if you are new to crypto mining


Stratum Configuration (Advanced Miners)

stratum+tcp://xmr.coinfoundry.org:3032 CPU Mining
stratum+tcp://xmr.coinfoundry.org:3033 GPU Mining
stratum+tcp://xmr.coinfoundry.org:3034 High-End Multi GPU Mining

Login using your wallet address as username. An optional workername can be appended to your address separated by a dot character. Leave the password blank.

Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<WORKER>

To mine directly to an exchange you need append your paymentId to your address separated by a hash sign.

Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>#<PAYMENT_ID>.<WORKER>

SSL/TLS: To connect using SSL/TLS please add 100 to the respective port number. For ccminer, claymore and sgminer change the protocol from stratum+tcp:// to stratum+ssl://. For dstm's Miner change the protocol from stratum+tcp:// to ssl://. XMRig does not currently support SSL.


Windows Nvidia GPU Mining

  • The following step requires the 7zip archiver which can be downloaded from here
  • Download ccminer from here. Make sure to select the correct version for your hardware and Operating System (32-Bit or 64-Bit) - when in doubt choose 32-Bit
  • Extract the archive and open ccminer.conf in a text-editor of your choice
  • Replace the contents of the file with:
   {
     "max-log-rate" : 30,
     "quiet" : false,
     "debug" : false,
     "protocol" : false,
     "cpu-priority" : 3,
     "algo" : "cryptonight",
     "url" : "stratum+tcp://xmr.coinfoundry.org:3032",
     "user" : "YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS",
     "pass" : "d=8"
   }
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your monero wallet address. If you don't know your address, read this section first
  • If you are mining on multiple machines/rigs, you can append an identifier of your choice to your wallet address seperated by a dot to make it easier to distinguish between your rigs when evaluating your results. Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<WORKERNAME>
  • To mine directly to an exchange you need append your paymentId to your address separated by a hash sign. Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>#<PAYMENT_ID>.<OPTIONAL WORKERNAME>. Be advised that the payout threshold is much higher for payouts to exchanges due to the significantly increased transaction fees.
  • Save the file
  • Start ccminer.exe or ccminer-x64.exe

Getting a Wallet

Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although Monero is an entirely digital asset, you still need a place to store them. This is done in a digital wallet. There are multiple methods to obtain a wallet which vary by ease of use and the security they provide.

MyMonero

MyMonero

MyMonero is an uncomplicated method to obtain a monero wallet. Convenience comes with a price of course. Even though this site is run by the creators of Monero, your private keys leave your computer which is a security concern.

Official Wallets

Official first-party Wallets for all major platforms are available from the Monero Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the Monero Team.

Cold-storage wallets

For long-term storage of Monero you should create a cold wallet using MoneroAddress or similar. A cold-storage wallet is extremely secure if you guard your monero private key by storing it in a password vault such as KeePass or LastPass or printing it out and depositing the sheet in a real bank vault.

Registering with an exchange

There are multiple digital currency exchanges you can register with. Registering with an exchange allows you to create a wallet on the exchange for every currency the exchange supports. Registering with an exchange is probably the most convenient way to obtain a wallet. Unfortunately it is also the least secure one. Exchanges have been hacked in the past!

Popular exchanges supporting Monero are: Bittrex, Poloniex, Kraken, Bitfinex and HitBTC.
